Explore the realm of alternate histories as we explore the "what ifs" that can flow from history's most pivotal moments. Each episode will focus on a specific moment in time--the fork--where history could have taken a different path. A Fork In Time encourages contributions and participation by our community of listeners who have become an integral and vital part of the show.
 
Almost History. Always incredible. What if ... ?

Rescued from the footnotes, archives and passing references, each episode explores what almost happened and explains why it didn't.

What’s the difference between an EVP and an employer brand? It’s not a riddle, but for something so fundamental to our understanding of helping attract and retain talent, it seems like EVP, employer brand, brand position, and brand promise are almost never well-defined.

This is the power Apple leverages when it launches a new product, to know tha…
